    The tradebooks hold the base schematic/recipes/patterns for that particular design skill.

    For example, if you have a cooking tradebook, you can populate it with the base recipes that are on sale in the crafter's guild (yes, you have to buy and add the patterns yourself, so don't feel obligated to buy everything at once). Then, instead of holding 35478329354 base patterns or having to re-buy them when they decay, you can copy the patterns from the tradebook instead.

    A populated tradebook will look something like this:
    tradebook tome list
        ID Recipe                                 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
         1 a recipe for a plain loaf of bread
         2 a recipe for a plain salad
         3 a recipe for a plain cookie
         4 a recipe for a plain scone
         5 a recipe for a plain muffin
         6 a recipe for a plain cake
         7 a recipe for a cup of cooked food
         8 a recipe for a plain bread roll
         9 a recipe for a skewer of cooked food
        10 a recipe for a platter of cooked food
    So, if I want to start creating a loaf recipe, the syntax will be DESIGN SKETCH COPY 1 FROM TOME

    It's more a convenience thing and I did kinda wish they came pre-populated, but I wound up buying tradebooks for all my design skills because holy crap, it's so much easier than carrying a bunch of extra items around.

    You can also populate the tome directly by using TRADEBOOK <TOME> BUY so you don't wind up with all the patterns in your inventory that you wind up dumping because why would you bother carrying them around after that >_>

    Only if the design approval team starts letting me use 'Targossian silver' and stop claiming Targossas is not a source of silver.

    You have your mission.

    Isn’t there a quest where you can pan for silver in the Silverveil?

    Silverveil silver is acceptable, Targossian silver is not.

    Silverveil silver ain’t Targossian because all rivers belong to Lord Neraeos. S’hris Fluvialis! ;)

    Could try Targossian Imported Silver or Targossian Refined Silver

    I'd have to run the numbers a bit more, but looking at my talismans, cards, and Mayan crown sales... I have turned about 110-115% profit. There are some more I have not sold yet, but overall I am happy with this promotion.

    I bought 30.
    Open 10 and made what I would have spent buying 400 credits (cost of 30 globes)
    Opened the rest and managed to get enough to buy a SoA, so I think so.
    We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.

    Eeh, I didn't get near. But, I've also never been the lucky sort. Which is why I generally stay away from anything related to gambling.

    Is there a way to move classes to different slots? Like, second to primary?

    No. The lesson scaling is based on the slot, so classes have to stay where they are.

    Quit them all, relearn them in a different order, and cry as your wallet bleeds. :angry:

    Oh. Well, okay then.

    I definitely don't think it'll be worth it to quit and lost half my lessons to move slots, so, gonna chalk that up lesson hard learned. Or will the lesson scaling make it worth it, as I plan to stay my current class?
  • PauxPaux Member Posts: 31
    @Ryssa I think I did the same thing. 

    I started a second class because I was a little bored with bard and wanted to try some new utility, but severely underestimated the lessons required. Now I'm thinking of quitting bard to finish out my new class, but i think I'll still be short lessons to reach transcendence.

    Now I wish I just quit class to start with.

    Eh heh a couple questions:
    - Can clothes be tailored to retain more warmth after they've already been made? Or tis it only possible when it's getting made?
    - it says on the help file, if you customize something to be resetting, is automatically adds nondecay. But, is there a a grand price difference between just making something nondecay? Or is it worth just getting resetting on it too?

  • TahquilTahquil Member Posts: 4,410 @@ - Legendary Achaean
    I know warmth is not a thing. I had assumed they had stopped giving warmth values to clothing made after the change. SO no, I doubt you can change the warmth of an tailored item anymore.

    Because of the nature of resetting it has to be a non-decay item or else your money will just be wasted when it does naturally decay. Non-decay is still a viable optin without resetting if you are short on credits! But it also has the danger that the item can still be stolen either by players or denizens.... then you've just lost the item you've spent a lot of credits on.

    To go from plain item to resetting means you need to pay both the non-decay cost and the resetting cost. (I think it's 50cr each so 100cr in total).

  • SkyeSkye The Duchess BellatereMember, Seafaring Liason Posts: 3,086 @@ - Legendary Achaean
    - They recently removed clothing warmth as a feature, so that actually isn't a thing anymore.

    - You should think of resetting as a step up from non-decay rather than a separate customisation option.

    Non-decay is 50cr. Resetting (on its own) is 50cr. But because it is pointless to add Resetting to an item that decays, it automatically adds on the Non-decay feature to make the total cost of 100cr.

    Resetting is a thing that's done mostly for peace of mind. Because you invested 50cr already in the item (not including whatever else you paid for the item to begin with), it'll suck if someone managed to steal it. That said, if you have a house, you can also request for the item to be made resetting to the room instead. IIRC it costs the same.

    Adding warmth is done after the item is made.
  • LennLenn Member Posts: 676 ✭✭✭✭ - Eminent
    Oh, it has finally been removed.

    Previously, they removed all mention of it, but never actually removed the functionality itself.

    The funeral shroud seem a little restrictive to anyone? You quite literally can't do anything while it's up or it drops. Even checking QW, sending a tell, CREDIT REPORT, changing what language you speak, everything breaks it. Also wish it would conceal your name from GMCP - currently if anyone parses that data for display, the hiding effect is useless, which seems to negate both the point and flavor of the item of "vanishing from the eyes of mortal perception". You can still target the person with LOOK and emotes if you know they're in the room (or guess that they are).

    Also counter-intuitive is that if you are hidden, SEARCH will still force you to emerge (and is visible) and so are ghost and cloak dropping.


    EDIT: I feel like it should drop if you use any active cure/heal, raise a defense, emote or perform an aggressive action, but otherwise allow you to send tells, read news, check messages etc.
